The Ian Tomlinson Inquest

It has been interesting to follow the inquest into the death, on 1st April 2009, of Mr Ian Tomlinson.  The Inquest has (very commendably) set up a website which offers a great deal of information including transcripts of the hearings.  The hearings are before His Honour Judge Peter Thornton QC (the City of London Assistant Deputy Coroner) and a jury.  Once a verdict has been returned it will then be appropriate to look at this in more detail.

The Inquest jury was sworn on 28th March and visited the location of the events on 1st April 2009.  Live evidence began on 1st April .

See Ian Tomlinson Inquest website and the Tomlinson Family's website.

The Guardian as been following the Inquest closely with up-to-the-minute reports.
